there's a lip that sticks inward off the inner fender brace and that is what can contact the tire sometimes... get in there with a grinder and grind the end of it down some and hit it with a bit of paint and you should be good to go....

the paint ought to show you where the tire is rubbing up there too!

If it's only rubbing on the right side, you can probably stop the rub by centering the brace over the tire. The assembly line workers aren't very fussy during that operation, plenty of room for error with stock tire. My fender and brace was way off center from factory, many are. Loosen strut bolts and alternately tighten with brace centered. Good Luck Exclamation

here is the likely to be the spot that is rubbing .







after you grind them flat , like Nodakbassmaster said paint them to keep them from rusting.

Mine needed grinding in the same place as Hman8's pics above, but I'm also running a 215.
A 205 on an 1800 with a centered fender and brace, usually doesn't need grinding or any other clearance mods.

Can these spots be ground off while the bracket is still mounted?
Thanks

Yes, I did mine mounted, with a 4" grinder, carefully so you don't nick the fender.

yes just remove the wheel from the bike , but ck the center like Dan said first, that way your fender and brace is centered, might remove the rubbing without grinding.

I got the same thing going on with my 06 1800 C, rubbing on RHS only,,, (Not as severe as the pic above, also, I have not ground the tabs, 205/65/16 HE)

Now I know I'm dumb as a box of rocks, What a Face , but I assume one checks the centering of the fender/fender struts by measuring from each sidewall to the fender, correct?

I'm headed out to the garage,,, gonna try rasslin the fender/fender struts around,,, I'll do some measuring before and see what's going on,,,

UPDATE: No luck with the Rasslin,,, Honda: 1, Scotrod: 0. I loosened the upper shock mount and all 3 remaining bolts in each side. Also loosened (3) small bolts, (1) in front area of fender, and (2) hidden behind the fender struts.

Pulled, yanked, tightened every which way sequentially,,, no significant gains. RHS fender is closer to the tire at "12 noon" than the LHS by approx ~1/8" - 3/16"~ Not much difference off of centerline, but,,, I tried,,,

OK, now for round 2.

Rear wheel is off, Grinder is plugged in, takin a tea break before the dirty work begins!,,, (yep, we got a little rubber 'dust' and a shiny spot on the RHS inner fender support,,, I got a feelin it's just about ready to get a WHOLE LOT MORE shiny real soon! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )

UPDATE 2: Fender tabs: 0. Makita: 2!

cheers

Scotrod
